Food spaces in Iceland

Food spaces in Iceland

I went to the movies the other day to watch “The secret life of Walter Mitty”, a movie mostly set and entirely filmed in Iceland. I was not sure if I should watch it, but the fact that the movie was set in Iceland made my decision easy. Normally this would not be worth a mention here on S&C, but:

Iceland stands for …

London markets: Borough and Leadenhall Market

London markets: Borough and Leadenhall Market

“London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down, my fair Lady”

Singing along this old English nursery rhyme in my first English lessons in kindergarten, the London Bridge has kept in my mind all the years. Much more than the Tower bridge, which is – nowadays at least – the much more impressive neighbor just to the west along the Thames river. But the London Bridge has been …

Taking a break in London

Taking a break in London

“Was, schon wiiiiiiiiieder Kaffee?” (“Coffee agaaaain?”) – This or similar was my reaction as a child when my parents wanted to take a break in a coffee place during traveling. A popsicle on the run was enough to keep me going most of the time (outside meal hours) and there was always so much more to explore. So why take the time and sit down?

Oh Ticino

Oh Ticino

Easter felt like April had arrived early. Even though this year the Easter weekend fell onto the last few days of March, it sure felt like April: the weather changed its mind at least once a day and provided a mix of clouds, rain and beautiful sunshine. It made sure to …

Hunting the color – shrimp skewers with avocado cream

Hunting the color - shrimp skewers with avocado cream

This weekend I needed a bit of color in my life. Over the last weeks, the city has been hiding itself behind different shades of grey and – in between – some batches of fresh white snow. After all these sunless days, I needed color. A new bunch of fresh flowers, colorful tulips to be exact, were not sufficient this time to brighten up my weekend…

Mallorca in 30 pictures

I imagine you might need a little break from food after this Christmas season (I hope you had a good one). Therefore I spare you with another recipe and will only give you something for your eyes instead – 30 pictures to be precise, some words (not much more, but I will not count), but no recipe. I promise.

Advent Calendar Day 24 – Merry Christmas from the heart of Europe

Advent Calendar Day 24 - Merry Christmas from the heart of Europe

Vienna during Christmas season. Ahhh. For me that’s one of the most beautiful times to visit Vienna. In the city center almost every main street will have its own christmas lighting, from chandeliers to crowns to a simple star carpet. Christmas markets are set up …

Advent Calendar Day 8 – Snowy Zurich and Porcini Potato Soup

Advent Calendar Day 8 - Snowy Zurich and Porcini Potato Soup

Winter has not even officially started. According to the astronomical calendar we still have fall. But as we know Frau Holle (Mother Hulda) does not stick to calendars and she covered Zurich in snow yesterday (actually not the first time this fall). I grabbed my camera and strolled through …

Eton Mess – Raspberries, cream and a personal challenge

Eton Mess - Raspberries, cream and a personal challenge

“Eton WHAT?!?!” – This was more or less my reaction when reading through the program for the Plate2Page workshop in Somerset six months ago (I can’t believe half a year has passed since then…time has been flying!). Eton Mess – Eton like the college and mess like …

Breakfast in Freiburg im Breisgau

Breakfast in Freiburg im Breisgau

Sunday morning. Earlier this year. Germany. Medieval city gates. Cobbled Streets. Empty. Little runnels alongside. Used as water supply as early as in the 13th century. A city seeming asleep. Freiburg im Breisgau. Sunday morning.
